  • Animated by Courtney Booker and Greg Rozum.
  • In a review of Here Come the ABCs in Slate, Douglas Wolk called the song "a heart-tugging country lament in the tradition of William Steig's CDB!" Steig's children's books CDB! (1968) and CDC? (1984) also made punning use of letter names.
  • The acronym ICU, besides being a reminder of one's watchful presence, stands for "intensive care unit," which makes the doctor's-office music video seem fitting.
